Working Class and Gay in South Africa

[vodpod id=Video.3134475&w=425&h=350&fv=]
CNN has a story on why despite South Africa’s progressive laws, lesbians and gays are still under attack there. The basic moral of the piece is that if you’re middle class, you can form your own safe, comfortable communities even if other middle class people want to discriminate against you. If you’re working class–and South Africa is a very social conservative country, with the working classes holding some objectionable views too–and gay, then you condemned to a more precarious life.

  1. Funny, the moral of the story would hold true in the United States too, where there remain huge class and racial gaps in accessing so-called gay rights.
